Lots of tourists visiting when I was there, but this is a really charming little village and the harbor is beautiful. Lots of nice, friendly restaurants and shops to visit as well.

This is a charming harbour and town. It is the only major centre on Skye, so it a great place to replenish provisions and gas up the car. Really pretty harbour, offering great views of the surrounding cliffs.

We overnighted in Portree and enjoyed the harbour frontage as a real local attraction. Both picturesque and colourful.

Now I like boats, the sea, harbours, seafood etc so when we're on holiday I like to visit such places and I found Portree rather pleasant. It's no Saint Tropez but we are on Skye. The harbour was quite quiet when we were there. No...More

We stopped by here and ate fish and chips, walked around taking photos and had pastry at a bakery. Nice little town to explore and take photos.
